I was feeling more AM jaunty than PM epic.

Doug Kershaw [06:34]
"Swamp Dance"
Days of Heaven - The Original Soundtrack from the Motion Picture
Pacific Arts PAC8-128 1979
Scoring primarily done by the late great Ennio Morricone with contributions from Doug Kershaw and Leo Kottke. A great film if you haven't seen it.

The Dream Syndicate [10:06]
"Too Little, Too Late"
The Days of Wine and Roses

Kendra Smith on vocals.

Pinky & Killers [14:39]
"Koi no Kisetsu"
De Luxe

It turns out that Koi no Kisetsu is the number 18 best selling single of all time in Japan.

Neil Young [17:42]
"Do You Know How to Use This Weapon?"
Dead Man
Vapor Records 46171-1 1996/2029
Neil, Old Black, a pump organ, and Mr. Farmer and Mr. Depp.

Belle and Sebastian [22:09]
"Roy Walker"
Dear Catastrophe Waitress
Rough Trade RTRADELP 080 2003
So man great tracks to choose from. My go-to is usually "I'm a Cuckoo" but I always am pleasantly surprised when I hear this song as well.

Death Cheetah [25:03]
"Tired Blood"
Death Cheetah
Self Released trf 001 2017
Excellent slow-build track from Death Cheetah's self-released 2017 album. Coincidentally mastered by Paul Oldham.

The Rolling Stones [31:59]
"I'm Free"
December's Children
London Records PS 451 1966
The fifth US release from the Stones. Folks round about my age will probably recall a goofy cover by The Soup Dragons of this song.

Ray Charles [34:27]
...Dedicated to You
ABC-Paramount ABC-355 1961
A swingin' version of the Irving Berlin classic.

Bananarama [36:44]
"He Was Really Saying Something"
Deep Sea Skiving
London Records 422-810 102-1 R-1 1983
Originally a Motown tune recorded by the Velvettes, the ladies give it their own spin with the help of the Fun Boy Three.

VHÖL [40:27]
Deeper Than Sky
Gilead Media RELIC66 2016
A super group of sorts, featuring Mike Scheidt of YOB, John Cobbett and Sigrid Shele of Hammers of Misfortune, and the excellent Aesop Dekker on drums.

Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young [43:54]
"Everybody I Love You"
Déjà Vu
Atlantic SD 7200 1970
Sometimes you gotta go with the hits. Sometimes not.

R. Stevie Moore [47:16]
"Cool Daddio"
Delicate Tension
Personal Injury Records PI 101 1978/2013
The weird wonderfulness that is R. Stevie Moore.

Aidan Baker with Claire Brentnall [49:56]
"Delirious Things"
Delirious Things
Pleasance Records PR055 2017
An excellent collaboration yielding delirious ephemeral tracks.

Bobbie Gentry [54:57]
"Mornin' Glory"
The Delta Sweete
Capitol ST 2842 1968
Kinda seems like a perfect closer from Ms. Gentry's second album.

Music behind the DJ: "All You Need Is Love" by Normal Percival and his Orchestra
